It was only last week when Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer said that quarterback-turned-tight-end Tim Tebow was just "one of 90 trying to make the team" throughout spring and summer workouts and preseason games.
During his most recent appearance on "The Rich Eisen Show," Meyer explained that Tebow approached him about attempting an NFL comeback, and the coach admitted he's unsure if the veteran, who hasn't played a meaningful down in almost a decade and who turns 34 years old in August, will have a roster spot come Week 1 of the upcoming regular season.
"We don’t know," Meyer said of Tebow's chances, per Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. "This is uncharted waters. This is gonna be very difficult. But he’s been doing great. He’s been doing great in practice. He’s learning the offense. As you can imagine, he’s working as hard as anybody. I see a good camaraderie amongst the team with him, and it’s been good so far."
Meyer added Tebow is "working his tail off" and reiterated he's "one of 90."
All reports indicate Tebow won't be a traditional tight end and instead will be used by Jacksonville as an all-around offensive playmaker similar to Taysom Hill of the New Orleans Saints. Expect to see Tebow catching and throwing passes and probably even serving as a makeshift running back in certain formations ahead of preseason snaps.
